The 1.25mm-pitched Mini MiII wire harnessing connector from Molex Inc. occupies 45 percent lesser PCB area than similar 2mm-pitched versions, and is used for applications such as copy machines, printers, or white goods.

Rated at 1.5A, 100V, the connector is available in wire-to-board and wire-to-wire configurations, and can accommodate 2 to 20 circuits for single-row versions, and 10 to 40 circuits for dual-row types.

The Mini MiII is built around a common single-row IDT receptacle that provides cost-effective mass termination of discrete wire. Its housing is provided with guide slots to facilitate wire placement. Side ribs provide polarization and lock into a clip for dual-row configurations.

Header options include single or dual row, SMT or through-hole, and straight or right-angle. The through-hole version features a staggered-pitch PCB layout and an inner positive lock that provides secure mating and latch protection. It also features a raised platform to protect against flux wicking and kinked outer tails for PCB retention.

SMT headers feature extended outer side-walls to protect SMT tails, polarized inner side walls to facilitate mating, and a friction lock that provides an audible click to confirm mating.

For panel-mount applications, Mini MiII includes both single and dual-row panel pin adapters that accept the IDT housing on each side. Both versions include spring-type locking ears for panel retention, and inner positive locks for easy mating and latch protection.
